Chula Vista, Calif. (September 27, 2013) –
Americans topped the podium as the fourth and final stop of the UCI BMX Supercross World Cup kicked off on Friday with the time trial Superfinals at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, Calif.
Elite Men
With a time of 38.126, Connor Fields (Henderson, Nev./Chase BMX) won his third straight time trial Superfinal. The Nevada rider placed third in round one in Manchester and won rounds 2 and 3 in Santiago and Papendal before taking the final time trial win of the season on home soil. He finished ahead of compatriot Corben Sharrah (Tucson, Ariz./GT-Redbull) who grabbed the silver medal with a time of  38.455. Canadian Tory Nyhuag took the podium's third step with a time of 38.664.

"It felt awesome to win the time trials today in front of my friends family and the whole USA Cycling crew," Fields said. "A lot of work went into it so it was great to see everything come together."
Elite Women
Felicia Stancil (Lake Villa, Ill./GT Bicycles) clocked a 39.114 to take her first win of the season in Friday night's time trial Superfinal. Her best finish before Friday was a seventh-place effort in round one in Manchester. Time trialing to the silver was Laura Smulders (NED) with a 39.142. Alise Post (Saint Cloud, Minn./Redline Bicycles) finished with a time of 39.485 to add a bronze medal to the pair of silvers she earned in Manchester and Papendal.

"I started off the day with a fourth in the first time trial. I made a few mistakes but with fourth I figured out what needed to be done in the super time trials," Stancil said afterwards. "I stayed consistent and smooth in my super time trial and came across the finish line with a 39.1 for the win!"
Action will continue in Chula Vista on Saturday with the men's and women's Supercross finals. Going into the event, Connor Fields (Henderson, Nev./Chase-Monster) and Arielle Martin (Spanaway, Wash./Intense) are both ranked second in the overall Supercross World Cup standings.  Stay tuned to for details on how it all goes down!
